On March 5, Jennifer Niedermeyer joined Lewis & Clark Law School as Assistant Dean for Development & External Relations.

Jennifer’s roots are in Oregon, but she joins the law school most recently from California where she served as Director of Advancement for Point Blue Conservation Science in the Bay Area, and as California State Director of Philanthropy for The Trust for Public Land in San Francisco. She has a distinguished career in higher education fundraising, including work experiences with San Francisco State University, Oregon State University Foundation and Georgetown University.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a Master’s degree from the University of Oregon. Jennifer brings with her passion and a wealth of experience in fundraising. She is a marathon runner, fluent in German and has lived, studied, and worked all over the world.  Her new position is a natural fit for Niedermeyer; she is proud to continue a family heritage of valued education and service – her father began his legal education at Northwestern College of Law and has been practicing in law in Portland more than 50 years.
